Tracing titanium dioxide nanoparticles in the environment
Published on January 23, 2019
The abundance of titanium dioxide nanoparticles in the environment originating from human activities could be a potential environmental problem. To identify and distinguish between titanium dioxide nanoparticles from natural and anthropogenic sources, synchrotron techniques were used to study the nanoparticles in sewage sludge and soil.
Titanium dioxide nanoparticles are one of the most commonly produced nanomaterials worldwide. They are present in many consumer products, such as sunscreen (...)
